I've been playing around with a cheap little photography app for the iPhone 4 called 'You Gotta See This' (yes, a truly awful name) by Boinx Software that allows you to make quick and easy panographs. A panograph is a collage of still images that, when taken as a whole, create a larger image. I took the pictures below this morning outside the David Puttnam Media Centre:
The app only works on the iPhone 4 (not the 3G or 3GS) due to the utilisation of the inbuilt gyroscope feature. It's an affordable toy at $1.99 (iTunes link) or £1.19 (iTunes link) but the images do appear a little compressed in my example. As you can see in the slides above there are a number of default themes bundled in the app which you can't turn off which is a shame. It would be great if you could access a large image without having the borders that appear on each of the themed templates.
The app isn't perfect but it does enable anyone to create their own unique panographs easily. Here's a quick tutorial video explaining how the application works:
I'm sure this is one the first of many apps that will take advantage of the new hardware improvements in the iPhone 4.
